About the ride

Take a Private Day Trip from 1Athens / Starting point to the mythical center of the world, Delphi. Step foot in Ancient Greece’s most sacred place of worship, explore UNESCO listed World Heritage Sites and enjoy a traditional Greek lunch 900m above sea level. 

- Hotel pickup and dropoff from a professional English Speaking driver / local guide

- 100% Customisable & Private tour

After approximately 3 hours you will arrive at your main destination, 2Delphi Archaeological Site. According to Ancient Greek Mythology, Zeus released two Eagles from the West and East, and where they met in the middle would mark the center of the world. Delphi became a sanctuary dedicated to Apollo, the son of Zeus, as well as the site of the ancient Oracle. At the sacred archaeological site, you will get the chance to visit the Temple of Apollon, The Castalia Spring, the 3Delphi Archaeological Museum and the Great 4Ancient Theatre. Delphi was also home to the Pythian Games, the precursors of the Modern Olympics, which would attract athletes from all over the country every four years.

Following this, your driver will escort you to a traditional Greek tavern so that you can enjoy a delicious lunch in Mount Parnassos. Your driver will ensure you receive an authentic experience and offer personal recommendations for local dishes and delicacies. After your meal, you can continue your tour, on the idyllic mountain village of 5Arachova Village, located 968m above sea level. The picturesque village built on the southern slope of Mount Parnassos offers a spectacular view of the valley as well as several quaint shops and unique local architecture. Later on, you will visit the 6Hosios Loukas Monastery, a Middle Byzantine monument listed on UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. Situated on a beautiful mountainside, it is the oldest Monastery of its kind and is a token of ancient architecture and art.

Your Delphi experience comes to an end with a relaxing afternoon drive back to Athens, where your friendly Welcome Driver will drop you back off at your hotel or apartment.

The Delphi day trip was a day well spent during our short visit to Athens. Our driver, Ilias, was extremely professional and gave us very useful tips. The highlight of our trip was when Ilias took us to his favorite family-owned restaurant - undoubtedly the best local food we had during our trip. The trip is highly recommended and I hope you get Ilias as your driver!

Our driver/guide, Panagiotis, was very nice and accommodating. His driving was excellent and safe. He also provided us tips and information on the places we visited. He has an excellent luxury Mercedes van that we love so much. My family enjoyed the trip so much because of our driver and the vehicle and the snacks and water provided on the trip which made the trip exciting and very comfortable. I already recommended him and WelcomePickups to my brother who may plan to visit Greece again with his family sometime in the future.

What I liked the most of our trip is that Kosta had the sincerity in taking care of our entire family and ensuring that everyone had a good time!

Not only did we see how beautiful Greece is with a driving tour, but our driver, Nick, was exceptional. The entire experience from driving the country side in a more than comfortable car with snacks and bottles of water available, to seeing unforgettable sites, to becoming friends with our driver. We even had lunch together! Welcome Pickups is a great company after all.

Useful tips

Comfortable Clothes & Shoes

We recommend that you wear comfortable clothing and good walking shoes since certain areas, such as the walk up to the Delphi site contains many steps and may have uneven or rocky ground.

Summer Essentials

In the summer months, the Greek sun is especially strong (even on cloudy days) so we recommend that you wear a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen to protect yourself. Also, be sure to drink enough water throughout the day to stay hydrated.

Bring your Camera

Photography is permitted in most historical sites unless otherwise mentioned.

Local Currency

We recommend you always keep local currency on you (euro) as many local merchants do not accept cards as payment.
